Update: Gamer University $10,000 Series
posted by Blue_Knight, 354 days agoUpdate: the co-casters for the event have been confirmed!
GamerUniversity.com and FireFlash have partnered up to launch the first of eight Open Series tournaments, in which 32 teams will do battle for a $150 prize and their place in the eventual Invitational Series.
Twelve teams have signed up for the first Open Series, and amongst them are fan-favourites such as Quantic Gaming, Complexity Gaming and Team Infused.
The first Open Series will be a best-of-one single elimination contest, with the format expanding to best-of-three clashes for the Semi and Grand Finals. A seeding system has been touted to ensure that heavyweight teams avoid each other in the early rounds, but it has not yet been confirmed.
The winners will receive $150 and lay claim to the first spot in the Invitational Series, where they will eventually go head-to-head with the winners of the seven other Open Series qualifiers for the $10,000 grand prize.
The action gets underway this Saturday, June 2nd at 13:00 Eastern Standard Time (19:00 CET), with FireFlash set to shoutcast all of it live, along with Draskyl and - potentially - our very own TobiWan too.
Sign up information is available below.
